ADDISON, Texas – 16 November, 2021 – The International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) will host its 42nd Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions on 27-30 April, 2022 in Boston, MA USA. An additional virtual component will be available for long-distance participation.

The preliminary program for the meeting is now available to browse at, and currently features three plenary sessions, 18 sunrise symposia, and 35 invited symposia sessions on topics spanning the breadth of clinical practice and research concerning heart and lung transplantation, advanced heart and lung disease, mechanical circulatory support, and pulmonary vascular disease.

“On behalf of the 2022 ISHLT Annual Meeting Program Planning Committee, I am excited to present the preliminary program for our annual meeting,” says Laurie Snyder, MD, Chair of the 2022 ISHLT Program Planning Committee. “The 2022 plenary sessions and symposia reflect the diversity of our society and shared interest in improving the care of patients with advanced heart and lung disease and transplant.”

“The planning committee has developed both discipline specific symposia tailored to professional communities as well as multi-disciplinary symposia that will appeal across disciplines,” says Snyder. “This year’s meeting in Boston will be the first chance to gather in person since 2019 and I look forward to seeing many of my colleagues in person and virtually.”
